I just installed A New Dawn, but I get a funny XML error in "ForceControlInfos.xml"!
This is because you have your Rise of Mankind folder in your Documents/My Games/Beyond The Sword/Mods folder. You need to move it to the Program Files/Sid Meier's Civilization 4/Beyond The Sword/Mods folder.
(The bug is caused by World of Civilization, one of the other mods in Rise of Mankind.)

I started up my game, but nothing appears different!
Check your Civilopedia for a new section at the end labeled "A New Dawn Concepts". If it is there, everything installed correctly. If not, see the next question for help...

Help! I can't get AND to install right!
Step-by-Step Instructions:

If you are using Vista or Windows 7, Either turn off your UAC or Right Click on your Civilization 4 Beyond the Sword shortcut and select "Run As Administrator".
Download Rise of Mankind 2.90 and un-archive it.
Copy or Move the Rise of Mankind folder to your C:/Program Files/Firaxis Games/Sid Meier's Civilization 4/Beyond the Sword/Mods folder. The path is C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\sid meier's civilization iv beyond the sword\Beyond the Sword\Mods if you own the steam edition, and for the complete edition it is C:\Program Files\2K Games\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4 Complete\Beyond the Sword\Mods
Note: It is very important that Rise of Mankind be in the "Program Files" directory and NOT the "Documents" directory!
Now, run the A New Dawn Installer.exe that you downloaded, it should ask for a destination, and the default one is wrong if you own Civilization Complete or the Steam Edition, make sure you set the destination as the the Rise of Mankind folder you just moved.
You will recieve a "Wrong Folder" warning screen if the installer thinks you did not select the correct folder. Go back, and double check, and select the correct folder, and the error will go away.
Install AND with the components you want, launch BTS, load Rise of Mankind, and play!

I installed A New Dawn correctly, but in game, the terrain flickers and is black!
Although the cause is not known (I suspect users are running out of VRAM), the solution is either to remove some of the new civilizations from the Mega Pack out of the Rise of Mankind/Assets/Modules/Custom Civilizations folder OR only use FULL or LITE RoM.

When I start the game up, the interface is all gone! I can't select anything!
This occurs with bad installs. Go back to the Directions and try again.
